Blueberry Madness

The height of blueberry season is upon us here in the US. My husband is famous for his pies, see photo above for reason. I was tasked with blueberry procurement for pie production. Five cups were ordered, five pints were purchased. Oops. I was faced with an extreme overabundance of blueberries.

The pie was baked, tasted and deemed delicious. We still had a lot of blueberries, having recently read a blueberry feature in Better Homes and Garden, I decided to try Blueberry Corn Salad:

An interesting idea, corn with a garlic lemon vinaigrette and spices. A bit weird, but good. Still, blueberries speak of baked goods to me and I still had some left. I thought Blueberry Pecan bread sounded like a good idea and freezable. Found a recipe for just the thing with a pecan crust on top. Baked it up, this is good and freezes well, so I will have some for later:

Then, the horrible truth revealed. I still had some of the blue things left. And didn’t want to eat anymore at the moment. Realizing dogs could eat blueberries and they are actually good for them, I whipped up some Oatmeal Peanut Butter Blueberry Dog Treats:

The overabundance of blueberries, finally conquered. I walked the dogs and gave them a treat. Everyone was happy.

    I am also of the mind that you can never have enough blueberries, but I’ve never been faced with a truly insurmountable amount – I’m sure I’d quickly change my tune! That blueberry pecan bread looks so good!

  4. Yum. It all looks great, though, as you hint, the blueberries and corn are a wee bit — curious. I love blueberries.
